We had a cosy studio with a kitchenette, offering everything we needed for our stay. Good wifi connection. Optional breakfast is served by Mihalis on the terrace (5€ per person). It's just 2 minutes of walking to reach the main Diafani beach and all the tavernas. Approx 15-20 mins to another beautiful beach under a cliff where we were almost... More

They are thieves. I had to leave the hotel after 2 days and let money for my stay, yet they charged my credit card for the full stay. The hotel has no sea view anywhere, so their description is a lie.

Left Balaskas with tears in my eyes. Sometimes you really meet good people and that was the case! I feel quite privileged for meeting Vassilis and Evgenia. Vassilis is such a warm and friendly person, very attentive, always available to help and really concerned about our well-being and with good suggestions for walkings. His big smile is contagious. We had... More

Hotel Belaskas has all the conditions that We expected, was clean, spacious, well located, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and recommended. But the best, and unforgettable, is the couple who run the hotel. They made us feel really welcome and made us feel like we were at a friend's house. Vasilis, the owner, is a generous and... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. We had a double studio room which was lovely and even had a double bed (not that common in greek hotels). The room was very comfortable and clean (cleaned every day to a high standard) and Vassilli and Evgenia were very friendly and helpful. As the studio had a fridge and cooking facilities... More

The calm and relaxed atmosphere is just perfect for anyone that wants to get rid of the crowd and any sort of stress. The place is clean, fresh, and comfortable. The lack of sea view is totally rewarded by magnificent breakfasts (eggs, local cheese, yogurt, honey and marmalade) in the patio, friendly chats with the owners, suggestions about the surroundings,...

When I visit Diafani I always stay at Balaskas' Hotel - that says something! Nice and clean hotel, not on the seafront, but very quiet and less than 5 minutes walk to the seafront. I had rooms from Standard to Studio, spacious, with refridgerator and air condition. Hosts Evgenia and Vasilis are very friendly, helpful and can always give you... More

We stayed at the Balaskas hotel for 5 days with our baby. The Balaskas family were excellent hosts and went out of their way to be helpful. First, they gave us a very nice wooden crib for our daughter (not the usual travel bed!), which had been their grandson's. Vassilis picked us up and dropped us off at the port,... More
